cow 300x221 Toxic Botulism in Animals Linked to Monsantos RoundUp Herbicide 23rd Decmeber 2011

By Rady Ananda – foodfreedom.wordpress.com

Dr Mercola recently interviewed Dr Don Huber, whose letter to the USDA warning that Monsanto’s RoundUp, a broad-spectrum “herbicide” that has been linked with spontaneous abortion in animals, continues to be ignored by food and environmental safety authorities. In this important hour-long discussion, Huber, a plant pathologist for over 50 years, explains how RoundUp is destroying our healthy soils by killing needed microorganisms.

Not only did his team discover a new soil pathogen, but he reports that animals are coming down with over 40 new diseases, like toxic botulism. Huber explains that before the widespread use of herbicides, pesticides and genetically modified food and feed, natural probiota would have kept Clostridium botulinum in check.

Mercola provided a full transcript and highlights some of the main points (excerpted):

Glyphosate Destroys Soil Microorganisms, which Denatures Food

Roundup Ready crops are very heavily sprayed with Roundup, and the resulting glyphosate residue cannot be removed or washed off—it actually becomes part of the plant. As a result, humans are now ingesting far more of this herbicide than we ever have before because it’s systemic through the entire plant.

Without Healthy Soils, Human Health is Decimated

According to Dr. Huber, about 20 percent of the glyphosate migrates out of the plant’s roots and into the surrounding soil. Once in the soil, the glyphosate kills beneficial soil microorganisms in the same way it kills weeds, because they have the same critical metabolic pathway. The thing we must all understand is that once you destroy the beneficial microbes in the soil, you’ve destroyed the food grown in it, because the quality of the food is almost always related to the quality of the soil, which depends on a healthy balance of microorganisms.

It is in fact the microorganisms in the soil that allow the plants to utilize the nutrients.

New “Franken-Organism” Threatens Plant-, Animal- and Human Health

A brand new micro-fungal-type organism has been identified, which has been linked to what researchers are now calling Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS). Dr. Huber was recently informed of a dairy experiencing a 70 percent miscarriage rate!

“It’s not a fungus. It’s not bacteria. It’s not a mycoplasma or a virus – [although] it’s about the same size of a small virus… They have pictures of it… You can see the interactions with it. They can now culture it. It’s self-replicating… If you have yeast, bacteria, or a fungus in the culture, this entity grows very well.”

What is known is that:

  • It’s an entirely new entity, previously unknown to science
  • It’s definitely found in genetically engineered corn and soybeans
  • It causes infertility and miscarriage in cattle, horses, pigs, sheep, and poultry

“We can anticipate with that broad spectrum of animal species, which is extremely unusual, that it will also [affect] humans,” Dr. Huber says. “We’ve seen an increasing frequency of miscarriage and a dramatic increase in infertility in human populations in just the last eight to 10 years.”

Here’s the second hour of the interview:
